Representative Amy Loudenbeck of the 31st Assembly District was awarded the 2017-18 Friend of the Towns Award for her efforts on behalf of town interests.
“Representative Loudenbeck’s breadth and depth of knowledge of town issues empowers her to uniquely serve the citizens of the 31st,” said Mike Koles, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Towns Association. “This doesn’t happen by accident. Representative Loudenbeck’s dedication to researching and learning directly from town officials and citizens is extraordinary. We are continually impressed with her pursuit of constituent opinions and solutions to their challenges.”
Friends of town government share a core belief that the best decisions occur closest to the people. They understand that local leadership is the fuel for inventive solutions to public and private sector challenges and the key to unlocking the power of democracy.
Representative Loudenbeck fully understands the power of local decision making. She has been instrumental in protecting and enhancing the ability of those officials closest to the people to make the important decisions that impact their neighbors and their backyards. “This is clearly evident in her journey to preserve and increase the ability of town fire and EMS to provide critical life savings services,” said WTA President Lee Engelbrecht. “Her background and passion has and will continue to help us ensure town departments thrive in serving the millions of Wisconsinites that depend on them.”
Koles added, “We are very appreciative of Representative Loudenbeck’s efforts supporting the empowerment of Wisconsin citizens and her work to address our priority of issues of transportation, public safety, and broadband development. Her drive to serve is unsurpassed.”
The Wisconsin Towns Association is excited to announce Representative Amy Loudenbeck as a Friend of the Town Award recipient.
